Oil on canvas (2012)
I've been doing cartoon based drawings with india ink for the past year. This is my first attempt at this new form of painting for me. It's a mixture of expressionism and cartoon imagery from my childhood. I stopped painting women in the traditional sense and started using something more playful and nostalgic to pull new viewers into some of the same type of issues and themes I’ve been experimenting with for the past 5 years.

I love this guy. He pretty much captures
really important phases of my artistic development. Check out his work.
